Saudi women workingThe Ministry of Labor has started employing women to supervise shops that cater exclusively to women, reported Al Arabiya.

According to an official from the Ministry of Labor, 45 women started working as supervisors in the commercial centers of Riyadh, Jeddah, and the Eastern region about two months ago.

More supervisors are being trained and employed in the other regions of Saudi Arabia. The women supervisors are trained to supervise stores and create reports.

The supervisors are instructed to inform the Ministry regarding any violations in the women’s stores that they inspect. Last year, the government introduced a law that allowed only women to work in women’s lingerie and clothing stores.
